Smooth-Talking Cowboy: A Cowboy Romance (Gold Valley Novels Book 1) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Olivia Logan has a plan: win back her ex by making him see what he’s missing. But first she needs to find a man who’s willing to play along. With his laid-back cowboy charm and knack for getting under her skin, Luke Hollister is an unlikely hero—but he wants her help convincing her father to sell him land, which means he needs her as much as she needs him.
Luke likes his life—and his women—uncomplicated. So why does good girl Olivia heat his blood like no one else? She’s always been off-limits, but the more time they spend as Gold Valley’s hottest new “couple,” the more real it’s starting to feel. Luke was supposed to help her win back another man…not keep her in his arms. But now that he has her there, he’s not sure he’ll ever let go.
Don't miss Maisey Yates next book, Confessions from the Quilting Circle! An emotional and powerful look at the secrets that divide a family, and the love that can heal it.

Man am I glad I didn’t wait on this one! I am in love with Luke. Like over the moon in love with that cowboy. I already knew Olivia and Bennett from a couple of the stories in the Copper Ridge series (don’t worry, you don’t need to read them to thoroughly enjoy and understand this one), and by the end of this story Luke even make me like Bennett. It’s hard to explain, so I won’t. But I was not previously a fan of Bennett’s, nor was I a fan of his through most of this book. Luke seems to have a way about him that brings out the best in those around him. He doesn’t realize he does that, and I don’t think most people realize he does it either. Yet that is the way I see things.
To be honest, in the Copper Ridge books Olivia is not a favorite of mine either. I didn’t exactly dislike her, but she did tend to annoy me. I knew there was some sort of story behind some of her actions though. This story really helped me to understand Olivia and even sympathize with her. The author did such a great job of telling Olivia’s story that I went from being annoyed with her parents to hating her parents to understanding her parents.
The thing about this story that I loved the most was the way Luke and Olivia came to realize their feelings. In many ways it seemed like insta-love, but they each quickly realized that all the years they’ve known each other there was something between them. I don’t think I’m giving anything away by saying that and I really want you to pay attention to those scenes when the characters have their awakenings. It’s different than almost any story I’ve read in that neither was going around feeling as if they had an unrequited love for the other…yet they both did. Very interesting and unique. I loved it!
Although I have a couple of months to wait for the next Maisey Yates book (which will actually a Copper Ridge Desires book), there will be three book in three months to look forward to. Woot!!!
In ‘Smooth-Talking Cowboy’ we meet Olivia Logan and Luke Hollister. Olivia is the towns good girl. Olivia has always known how her life would be like. She would marry her handsome friend, and would go life on his ranch and be a good wife. But when her relationships ends, her future plans seem to be far off. To get her ex back, Olivia has a plan to hang with the town’s playboy Luke. But there has always been something between Olivia and Luke, and soon things change for good.
Maisey Yaites definitely didn’t disappoint with ‘Smooth-Talking Cowboy’. This story was fun, romantic and filled with cowboy’s. I definitely enjoyed reading this one. Olivia’s character wasn’t my favorite, she seemed to be this spoiled woman for a long time, but thankfully I began to like her more and more the further the book went. And her relationship with Luke was really fun to read about.
Luke’s character was definitely my favorite in this book. He was fun, easygoing and a much better man than he gave himself credit for. I loved him. And the romance between Luke and Olivia was really fun to read about. Their chemistry was amazing and I couldn’t read this book fast enough.
In the end I found that everything happened a little to-fast in the last chapters, but I still really enjoyed this book. And I can’t wait to read more.
Basically the same premise for both books. Both men carry the pain of no father in their lives and a mother who died when they were not yet adults.
Maisey Yates writes individual stories that take each couple through very emotional paths to an HEA.
I still found the whole book with two stories engaging enough stay up late to finish.

25-year-old Olivia is a woman with a plan. You know the type, the ‘This is where I’ll be in 5-years’ etc. Only her ex-boyfriend put a spanner in the works *frowns*. For someone who strives to be in control of all things, failure is not an option. On a mission to win him back she hatches a plan with the last man anyone would expect ‘Good Girl’ Olivia to spend time with - well, voluntarily.
Gold Valley is the only home that 36-year-old Luke Hollister has ever truly known. If you’re *coughs* looking for a good-time-guy with no strings attached then Luke is your man *snorts* Don’t let that smile fool you though, this is a man loyal to his very core and extremely hard-working but masking a hurt few can imagine.
It’s finally time for Luke to lay down his roots and have something to call his own. Olivia could be the key to making his dreams come true so what’s a little quid pro quo between frenemies?
What is they say? The truth will out? Well, it certainly is for these two. Just being in each other’s orbit causes fissures in their carefully crafted defences. Says a lot, doesn’t it?
Both have secrets, both aren’t being true to themselves. If we can’t be honest with ourselves then what hope is there? As you can tell, I was starting to get a bit exasperated with them at this point. Lots of talking to the book ensued with promises of head knocking if they didn’t get their heads *whispers* out of you know where *smirks*
Whaaa? Puhlease! It wouldn’t be a ‘me’ review without some talking to the characters. Lalalalala *puts fingers in ears* What have I said before? They are real to me. End of.
I defy anyone not to lose a little bit of their heart to Luke. He’s totally swoon-worthy and caused spontaneous outbursts of coquettish laughter *palms face* No need to worry about me, I do enough of that on my own...Sheesh!
This was my first read by Maisey Yates and I can’t wait to return to Gold Valley.
So, what are you waiting for? Come on, you know what they say about cowboys and horses? Save a horse... okay, okay - I won’t say another word *winks*
I think my main reason I didn't enjoy them is I just find the whole fragile inexperienced virgin with the big strong “bad man” philanderer with a “secret heart of gold” trope a little... boring...., overplayed and old fashioned and not something I find very appealing. I would not have picked this up if the blurb had made it more clear it was that kind of romance.
It feels as if the author disrespects her readers when she's that unprofessional.
